2. Spiced Butternut Squash Smoothie

While pumpkin smoothie recipes are incredibly popular, smoothies with butternut squash are far less common. But that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t use some leftover squash from last night’s dinner to put in your blender too. This smoothie recipe is packed with vitamins A and C, and although it takes a bit of prep work, it’s worth it for a special fall occasion.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve immediately.

 

3. Fresh Apple Chia Smoothie

If pumpkins and squash are the quintessential vegetables of fall, then the apple is the iconic fruit of the season. Here’s a tasty recipe that pairs fresh apples with chia seeds to give you a little protein boost as well. The spices in this recipe makes it just as satisfying as a piece of apple pie, but with none of the guilt.
